Opening panel: Power production and renewable energy
Latin America is a global leader in the renewable energy space as governments have set a 70% target of generating the countries’ total energy consumption from renewables by 2030, which would require rapid acceleration in the development of renewable generation projects. The region is ideally set up to take advantage of its excellent solar and wind resources, but the population is also expected to rise by 18% by 2050. This panel will discuss:
- How achievable is the 70% target and what investment and development is required to meet this target?
- What is the greenfield pipeline in the renewable energy space?
- Is there enough connectivity and storage to enable the energy sector to fully decarbonize?
- How will the region diversify from hydropower?
